The police in Cameroon four demonstrators killed in protests against the use of French in schools and in courts.

The victims fell in Bamenda, a city in the north west region of Cameroon. Bamenda is located in a region where English is spoken but the government of Cameroon wants the French to enter as its official language.

Cameroon is composed of ten semi-autonomous regions, eight of which are mainly French and the other two English. Also, the system of law differs between the Francofone and anglo-Saxon part of the country that was created after unification of British and French colonies. The English minority already feels a long time discriminated against.
